Origins and its post-Confederation partner Destinies continue their unrivalled ability to tell the story of the history of Canada by balancing different types of history while maintaining a coherent narrative that does not drown the reader in detail. In their new editions, these books have made even greater investment in student engagement, from beautiful production values to a careful integration of social history, with relevant examples that show readers history in the novels and films around them. MindTapT, a fully online learning solution, combines all learning tools-readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments-into a single Learning Path that guides the student through the curriculum and brings history to life!
Alan MacEachern teaches and researches Canadian history, with an emphasis on environmental history. Professor MacEachern is director of NiCHE: Network in Canadian History & Environment and editor of the Canadian History and Environment series at the University of Calgary Press.
